Reflections

Sorry I haven't been around this week. We finally made it back home after visiting family for a few weeks. We've been busy getting settled back into our normal routine and I finally had a chance to make a card last night.


The card is for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge theme, 'Reflections'. Isn't this mantle beautiful?


Here are the DEEtails:

I started by stamping a swirl from my Priceless stamp set in Basic Gray on Very Vanilla card stock. I love this stamp and actually used it on our wedding invitations! I used it as a sort of 'branch' to 'hang' my birdcages from my Aviary set in Going Gray ink. Then I embellished the birdcages and swirls with 1/8" Taffeta ribbon in very Vanilla, Rhinestone and Pearl Jewels, plus a few gray pearls I had in my stash. I stamped the sentiment from my Wings of Friendship set and added a taffeta ribbon and Scallop Edge trim. Then I added some Going Gray and Basic Gray mats.

Hope you like it!

  6. You always take it another step in such a positive way. The card was gorgeous but your brain tells you to add a little strip of bling or pearls. Love it.
